[nztechblog.net] “Daniel Boone” Green Mountain Grill with WiFi
It’s not Summer in NZ at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a BBQ in winter! By dodging dodgy weather in Auckland, I managed to use the “Daniel Boone” Green Mountain BBQ Grill a few times to bring you this review! The best thing about this BBQ is that I can remotely see and set on my smartphone what the temperature inside the grill is, and can also turn the grill on and off straight from the app, thanks to its WiFi capability! This BBQ Grill is powered by electricity and wood pellets and while you may think that by using electricity it will bump up your electricity bill, I can tell you it doesn’t!
The “Daniel Boone” BBQ Model comes with a digital control, a meat probe, a peaked lid for stand-up chicken / large fowl / rib racks, a convenience tray with utensil hooks, hard rubber tires and a venturi-style firebox for cyclone combustion.
A toy from the Star Wars franchise, an aerial camera and wood-smoke barbecue – what do you think these three things have in common?
The traditional wood smoke barbecue has been given a makeover and now includes Wi-Fi. Using an app you can start up, shut down or change the temperature on the Daniel Boone Wi-Fi Grill, $1399. With the computer control system, this wood pellet grill is easy to operate; simply fire it up, put on the meat, attach the meat probe, set the computer, and stand back while it does the work and you take the credit.
Digital Controller: Control your grill’s temperature from 66°-260°C in 5° increments. From smoke to sear, you will have unparalleled accuracy, winter or summer.
Meat Probe: Just plug the probe into the jack on the controller, put it through the access hole in the side of the grill, and insert into the meat. Push the Food button on the controller, and it will immediately display the internal temperature of the meat you’re grilling.

Mention the word BBQ, and Kiwis usually think of a hotplate, a gas burner, or charcoal. Green Mountain Grills takes a different tact, going with an electric grill that burns wood pellets to smoke and Grill food. If that wasn’t enough, their Grill also sports a Wi-Fi access point and is iPhone controlled. It’s an improbable combo, but in use it worked well.
Look and feel
Wood pellet smoker grills may be a new thing for New Zealanders but will be familiar to anyone in the USA.
The Green Mountain Daniel Boone Grill is a big beast. At roughly the size as a 3 burner BBQ, The Daniel Boone grill also has a wood pellet hopper which incorporates a Wi-Fi access point.
After the dark, cold and wet slog that is winter, evenings are warming up and getting lighter, my thoughts turn back to the great outdoors.
There are piles of gadgets designed for indoor use, but what about gear for the outside? I went in search of outdoors gear to make the most of the coming summer.

While at a media event earlier this month I bumped into a fellow tech writer I hadn’t seen for a while. Over lunch we got talking about what we had been up to and he mentioned that he had actually recently reviewed something he that he thought was amazing and that I should try.
The device he was talking about was the Green Mountain Grills Daniel Boone Grill, And I thought to myself “what a weird thing for a tech journo to review! Then he mentioned why, This is a Wi-Fi enabled Grill! OK, now not only did he have my attention but now I needed to have one!
We always liked Green Mountain, now we love them. Jason Baker of Green Mountain explains, “We have dramatically lowered our prices to allow the WIFi units to come in at better prices. The move towards WiFi will be interesting. We hope to bring a whole new consumer into the pellet grilling umbrella.”
WiFi adds about a hundred bucks to our posted MSRP for GMG’s full size Daniel Boone and Jim Bowie models and fifty bucks for the portable Davy Crockett. No other pellet smokers anywhere near GMG’s price range are offering WiFi control.
I believe the little Green Mountain Davy Crockett is the best portable pellet smoker currently on the market. Surprisingly, many of the portables out there still have an antiquated LMH controller, while Davy Crockett employs Green Mountain’s advanced digital touch-pad controller, with an integrated meat thermometer that lets you check internal meat temp with the flick of a switch. Furthermore, it includes adapters to run the electronics from your car battery or cigarette lighter. And Green Mountain is aggressively—ahem, hello price cut—promoting its WiFi capabilities, which enable you to monitor Davy Crockett from your smartphone or laptop.

So, I embarked on a research project for which unit to choose

Before the lime-a-ritas get busted out at your summer barbecue bash, sometimes you need to appoint a designated griller to handle the sensitive task of keeping an eye on the meats and veggies getting fired up on the grill.
